To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
If you're looking for a really good looking activity watch that you can wear to work without announcing to the entire office that you're an insufferable workout addict/apple fan, then this watch is a treasure. Light, wonderfully simple and affordable (S$180-220), this is the watch to set your mind to rest without breaking your wallet.
I like that the watch can play/pause music, notify you of calls/messages and supports payments. While none of those features are strictly "needed", it does help that you don't have to reach for your phone for these during a workout,or even while strolling. GPS tracking is good under open air (I tested it using the pin location feature, which I quite like, I think it will be quite handy during a hike).
A full charge lasts about 5 days, which is fine for me. The only downside is one more charging cable to keep track of/pack while traveling (wish they'd used USB-C or something). Not worth deducting a star though, the watch is a treat. I hope it's built to last.
Cheapest price for both online and offline retailers. Delivery took about slightly one over weeks from USA to Singapore. It is authentic Garmin watch manufactured in Taiwan with serial numbers and able to register product through Garmin website for one year international warranty. Overall function of watch are okayed but GPS is a disappointment which not accurate at all, able to capture GSP signal within 10 to 20 seconds , distance track varies by 100 to 200 metres on the up side.....example is correct distance is 4 km but the watch always track between 4.1 to 4.2 km. Would have given it 5-stars rating if not for the GSP issue.
Have been using this watch for close to a month. Though I could have chosen the latest Garmin, I thought I should get one that's easiest to use and learn. Have to admit I was tempted to get myself an Apple but thank God I am not disappointed by this Garmin. Took me a couple of days to understand most of the functions. Able to keep track of my different activities (i.e. indoor cycling, treadmill and swimming) without problems. Best part, I only need to charge this watch once every 3 to 4 days as I have the lighting turned up to the max. No problems with phone notifications too though I do not use Spotify as I workout with my phone. Buy this if you are looking to get an easy to use smartwatch.
DEFINITELY VALUE FOR MONEY. SAVE MONEY FOR THE OTHER COLOR VERSION, THIS STAINLESS STEEL BEZEL IS JUST CLASSIC. PAY LITTLE BIT OF PASSION ON DOING SETTING AT WATCH. IT IS NOT EASY, BUT ONCE GET IT DONE, YOU ARE READY FOR A RUN. (THE TIPS IS SOME TIME YOU HAVE TO RESTART THE WATCH WHEN YOU DO ANY CHANGES THRU SMARTPHONE. SECOND, PLEASE DO NOT BLUETOOTH CONNECT TWO DIFFERENT WATCHES AT SAME TIME, IT WILL NOT WORK SOME TIME)
I have used the Garmin Vivoactive 3 for about a month now and have no regrets getting it. It is comfortable and the watch is functional, able to record my jogs and my gym activities. I haven't tried swimming with it yet, but I will try soon. The controls are quite intuitive and not difficult to use. At just over S$180 when I purchased it, it is also a really good deal. A fully charged watch lasts about 3-4 days for me.
Love the product. I was using vivosport earlier on for more than two years and strap worn out. Unable to find the replacement for the strap. I have been reading article on vivoactive for a Long time. Got this special deal and decided to purchase it. It has everything I need.
Now I can see 4 updates at one go. It is really helpful for me when I am doing my tempo training. The battery seems not as Lasting as it claims.
Works well, tracks all the activities i need, comfortable, synchs easily and battery fine. Swimming doesn't register distance unless you're using your arms, but that's not important for me. Old model means good price. Newer model is twice as much. Great zombie watch face!
